A Mansfield woman has said she has been left devastated after discovering the cemetery plot she had reserved next to her parents has already been filled.

Elizabeth Adams (64), of Grasmere Court, took the plot right next to her mother Sarah Adams along with ten other members of her family when she died in 1988.

Her father, Hugh, was buried in the same plot as his wife when he died some years later.
